Social media is a great resource for anyone needing a creative boost. It is now a go to of mine whenever I need some inspiration for a new project. Instagram in particularly is the bomb at providing designers and creatives ways to share and connect with other fellow designers and creatives. I could sit and scroll all day because of how many accounts I follow, my feed is always filled with beautiful imagery of design, art, lettering and fashion… I am a little obsessed to be honest.
I wanted to share some of the Instagram accounts I follow that keep me inspired and motivated on my own projects. I also just want to give a shout out and thank you to these instagrammers for posting their work and projects in order for other creatives to enjoy, so thank you!
Design + Lettering + Illustration
Laura Hooper | Instagram @lhcalligraphy |
Her work is simply put, just beautiful and stunning to look at. She is constantly posting little calligraphy videos that I could watch all day. Great person to follow if you like to practice calligraphy or just want to look at pretty, whimsical things all day like myself.
Breanna Rose |Instagram @rowanmade |
I love this gals branding and logo designs. Her style is simple and subtle which is exactly how I also enjoy designing logos for clients. Follow her if you’re all about that logo love.
Julie Wylie | Instagram @whimsyandwild |
Modern letterer enthusiast can keep me entertained all day with her whimsical lettering style. Her Instagram is on point in keeping things consistent with her image and photography look (something I am trying to accomplish on my own account).
Freelance Wisdom | Instagram @freelancewisdom |
I discovered this account just recently and it is amazingly awesome for those who freelance full time or on the side. There are always interviews featuring freelance women designers and creatives as well as tons of resources if you’re interested in the freelance world. #Obsessed.
Corina Nika | @corinanika |
This lady is one of the reasons I wanted to start a blog. I found Corina a year or so ago and just fell in love with her design aesthetic. Be warned, her images on Instagram will make you want her life of living on an island and working with dreamy clients. Love this account.
Fashion + Decor
Joanna Gaines | @joannagaines |
No brainer here, anyone who loves HGTV and decorating obviously knows who Joanna Gaines is from Fixer Upper. Her Instagram is just as perfectly flawless just like her design taste. Follow her for even more fixer upper love.
Mary Seng | Instagram @happilygrey |
I love this girls images, they follow perfectly in suit with her account name Happily Grey, which you’d understand right away after scrolling through her images. I follow for her casual style and outfits which I am all about these days.
Julie Sarinana | Instagram @sincerelyjules |
Her feed is every girl’s dream feed. So many pretty pictures of travel, food and fashion. All my favorite things in one place.
Rachel Martino | Instagram @rachmartino |
Her bubbly style matches her bubbly photos, so cute and fun to follow. Great everyday fashion tips from a gal living in New York City.
Julia Engel | Instagram @juliahengal |
If you love seeing images of Victorian buildings, pastels and florals, her account was made for you. Her fashion sense is so elegant and classy that you’ll obsess all day long over the images she posts daily. Definitely one of my favorites.
These are just a handful of accounts I follow daily but I wanted to share them with you in hopes you'll find inspiration in your work or your own personal style. Enjoy these beautiful postings.
